To really understand what I’m going to post here, you might want to check the first part of the writing here. This is the second part of my writing “On Experiencing Procrastination, Laziness, Energy Loss, & How to Conquer It”.
Earlier before, I share my experience on how I finally starting to see the blinding light from my deep dark dungeon of negative personality which gnawed at me soon after I stop working from my previous job. And yes, it all start from googling a word “motivation”, found a picture that caught my attention, and set it as my desktop background. As simple as that.
You might be wondering what kind of wallpaper I was talking about,
A few hours later after I had my desktop background changed, I felt that it’s not enough to have one wallpaper. My right brain says I need more artsy, lavish, posh wallpaper and my left brain said I could take some more words as an hourly intake of motivational quotes.
And what do I do next? I surf into the large amount of Tumblr, Pinterest, and Google Image to find the perfect wallpaper for my laptop. I saved some pictures, about hundreds of them, put them in a folder titled “Motivational Wallpaper” which is the dopest folder name in my Picture category because the others are just general like “Pictures”, “Screenshots”, “GIFs”, and “Blog stuff”.
From surfing, saving, and setting as slideshow background, more or less it all only takes about one hour. I make my desktop background in a slideshow mode so I can intentionally or unintentionally read them all. I also decide that my wallpaper shouldn’t be dull and monotone so it would attract my inner, subconscious mind, to actually digest the words and find the meaning behind.
As I began to feel better and better, now I am eager to finish every activity on time, tend to think and see the positive thing, having a hard time to see my room messed up, feeling better bodily and spiritually, and the best thing of all, I am back to the old me, and even better than the last one!
Soon after that, I realized I couldn’t do this much without the help of my families, friends, and loved ones. They keep believing in me and that kind of support means a lot. Will I ever achieve this much without their help? I don’t know, but I’m sure it will be a much harder and long adventure before I eventually reach my goals. So, thanks a lot everyone!
And to finish it all, a few lessons we’ve learned so far:
- Don’t make excuses for your procrastination (seriously, don’t.)
- Set your goals and targets low, but aim and fire as hard as you can
- Be, and stay positive no matter what!
- Aware of your surroundings, help and give as much as you can
- Ora et Labora (pray and keep working on your project)
Looking back on what I’ve lost and what I’ve found on my life journey, I know it’s still far away from the finish, but now I am running on the right track and all the advantages are on me, mustn’t let the winning echo fade away right?
Thanks for reading, Ciao!
